Matthew 5:43-48 a.What was Jesus’ point in the teaching? The central point of the teaching is despite the traditional teaching which suggests otherwise, the followers of God are to pray for and treat everyone with love even if they are your enemies. This is because those who call God their father are to try and model their lives and their actions after his perfectness which includes how they are to treat others. Such a teaching is quite consistent from a biblical standpoint as throughout his ministry on earth Jesus constantly shows those who are around them to not react in violence but instead to act with humility and also love.
a. What was Jesus’ point in the teaching? In this teaching, Jesus was saying that we treat one another with love and compassion as he have loved us as much as laying his life for our sake, in order for us to join him in the kingdom of God. He said that we should speak well even to those who curse and despitefully use us and abuse us because, our reward for such time is in heaven and it is God who will revenge about these things for us. He said that we should love our enemy also not only our friends because God loves us the same way and God does not discriminate from anyone, despite their falls.

Three identifiers, as defined by the author, that describe Jesus as social status as a man include being a Palestinian Jew, being impoverished and belonging to a minority group among the majority Roman rule. Thurman points out that Jesus would have grown up experiencing the resentment of his kinsman of the Romans and the oppression of being poor. The question is asked by the author why does Jesus differ from many others in his same setting?” The answer according to Thurman is found in what makes Jesus unique and not the same has his fellow citizens. Jesus know that it was only through up lifting the inner spirit that humankind would be triumphed not through conquering their oppressors through physical force. Jesus is interpreted as the great liberator of the oppressed spirit. Through his teachings and actions, Jesus provides the tools to overcome the great oppressors fear, deception and
Jesus paid the price that we could not pay for our sins to redeem us from death and being eternally separated from him. No matter our shortcomings and our stubbornness, God still chooses to work in us and through us despite ourselves. (Veith G. E., 2002) This is exemplified by God allowing us to serve and be served by people from all walks of life. I think it is to remind us of our dependence on Him. Just as we realize that we cannot make it in life without God’s help, we cannot make it in life without the people around us, the everyday ordinary people. “God, who pours out his generosity on the just and the unjust, believer and unbeliever alike, hides himself in the ordinary social functions and stations of life, even the most humble”. (Veith G. , 1999) Our service would not be possible if Christ had not done for us what we could not do for ourselves.
The poor are to be special beneficiaries of his Good News” (page 154). Jesus served the poor and what others thought to be the unreachable and so should we if we are to truly serve.

In this narrative, Matthew was telling everyone to “Look at me I’m a testimony. I didn’t make it on my own. I’m not standing here all alone. It is Jesus who gave me this opportunity. Look at me I’m a testimony.” Matthew wanted to invest what Jesus had given to him into the lives of those who were in the same sinful situation before Jesus transformed his life.
Social Justice in the Gospel of Luke Scott Joseph Tabor ID/LR 5001 Foundations of Integrative Thought Social Justice in the Gospel of Luke When reading through the book of Luke, specifically Luke 4:16-30 social justice comes front and center almost immediately as Jesus is handed a scroll of the book of Isaiah. Jesus, not being one to shy away from teaching, read this book out loud and brought focus to an issue that many of us face today. The question of who is the Gospel for? Who are we as Christians, meant to share the good news with? Socially are we supposed to go outside of our comfort zones to reach those who, the Church or Society has deemed as un-teachable? This is what we will be looking at in this paper.
